There's nothing of the bovine left in this gorgeous former cowshed! Sleeping four, The Parlour lies in the grounds of a pretty, ancient farmhouse close to Bath and offers laid-back living, perfect for families, friends or a couple. From the cosy snug to the en suite bedrooms, it's a super-sweet pad perfect for exploring Bath and an easy drive from the fabulous towns of Frome, Glastonbury and Wells as well as Bristol.

The splendid snug is the perfect cosy escape, complete with squishy, super-comfy sofa to curl up on, a brilliant contemporary wood-burning stove, fab Smart TV (complete with on-demand TV, Netflix and other movie channels) and lots of books and games. Plain white walls offset the grey sofa and fluffy sheepskin rugs, whilst the old-fashioned radiators and stove stand out in charcoal and the dark wooden floorboards match the antique writing desk.


The kitchen is incredibly spacious with gorgeous geometric tiled flooring, plain white cupboards (filled with everything you'll need, safely tucked away) and golden oak worktops. For cooler months there is under floor heating, ensuring toes never get chilly. For dining, we love the mid-century dining table and the lovely light and airy feel.


Both bedrooms are en suite; the master bedroom is set in the eaves and has a roomy king sized bed, Smart TV and a collection of vintage furniture - we love the moss-green easy Ercol chair. The second bedroom is a pretty double. Both have Hungarian goose down duvets and 450 thread count cotton bedding, as well as beautiful throws and cushions.


The master bedroom's en-suite comes complete with a fantastic rainfall shower - perfect to wake up to in the morning, whilst the second bedroom's en-suite has a lovely bath with overhead shower - ideal for a long soak after a day out exploring.

Outside space

Outside, there's a little private courtyard with table, chairs and a barbeque for a spot of al fresco dining. You're also welcome to explore the pretty farmland nearby.

Baby friendly

The Parlour is exceptionally welcoming for children, with a huge selection of toys left as well as a cot, high chair, potty, plastic Tupperware and baby monitor available for your use - so no need to fill up your car!


Two dogs are very welcome at The Parlour.


The Parlour has WiFi, so if you need to get in touch with the outside world you can.

In the Area

Situated just outside Bath means there is plenty to do in this gorgeous part of Somerset. The village itself is in an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, perched on top of a hill overlooking the very beautiful Cam Valley. With loads of footpaths literally on your doorstep (the entrance to The Parlour joins to Limestone Link which is 36 miles of pathways) there's plenty to explore on foot and perfect if you have a dog with you. The glorious city of Bath is just a fifteen minute drive away - here you'll find the famous Roman Spa and museum as well as the very pretty Abbey, fantastic shops and beautiful Georgian architecture. Nearby Frome is worth a visit too; famous for its market, it also has a fabulous selection of independent shops, whilst iconic Glastonbury has more to offer than its festival with the Tor, Abbey and Holy Well a fascinating find. For little ones, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Longleat aren't too far away and are a real treat.
